Figuring out what do do with Nuclear waste is one of the biggest problems of our time. However, a group of scientists have figured out that if you take the super contaminated carbon 14 and turn it into synthetic diamonds, they can generate their own electrical charge, making them a nearly indestructible and long-lasting battery.

When the creation of the synthetic diamond batteries is complete, it ends up giving off less radiation than a banana. I think the important takeaway here is that BANANAS ARE RADIOACTIVE! This finally explains King Kong. Now, check the video out and see how it really works.

New technology has been developed that uses nuclear waste to generate electricity in a nuclear-powered battery. A team of physicists and chemists from the University of Bristol have grown a man-made diamond that, when placed in a radioactive field, is able to generate a small electrical current. The development could solve some of the problems of nuclear waste, clean electricity generation and battery life.
